Torrez v. Commissioner Social Security
Order Adopting 16 Report and Recommendation. Judge Jack Zouhary on 2/24/2017. (D,L)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF OHIO
Julian C. Torrez,
Case No. 3:16 CV 918
REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
-vsJUDGE JACK ZOUHARY
Commissioner of Social Security,
Plaintiff Julian Torrez timely filed a Complaint (Doc. 1) against the Commissioner of Social
Security, seeking judicial review of the Commissioner’s decision denying disability insurance benefits
(“DIB”) and supplemental security income (“SSI”).
This case was referred to Magistrate Judge Jonathan Greenberg for a Report and
Recommendation (“R&R”) under Local Rule 72.2(b). Following briefing (Docs. 13, 15), the
Magistrate Judge recommends this Court affirm the final decision of the Commissioner denying
benefits (Doc. 16).
Under 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1), a party must serve written objections to the Magistrate Judge’s
proposed findings and recommendations within fourteen (14) days of being served with the R&R.
Failure to file objections within the time frame set forth in the statute waives de novo review by the
district court. See Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140, 149 (1985); United States v. Sullivan, 431 F.3d 976,
984 (6th Cir. 2005).
Plaintiff’s deadline for filing objections has passed, and no requests for extension have been
received. The R&R accurately states the facts and law, and this Court adopts it in its entirety.
Accordingly, the Commissioner’s decision denying benefits is affirmed.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
